‘Sensitivity, integrity and a seriousness of purpose that promises much for the future’ – Murray McLachlan 

Born and raised in Bethlehem, Palestine, Marc was a student of the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music (ESNCM) and was awarded a scholarship at Chetham’s School of Music in 2019 to further his development as a wonderful pianist.

The concert provides a unique opportunity to hear one of the rising stars from Bethlehem perform in the intimate Carole Nash Hall. Marc’s celebratory evening covers music from Bach, Rachmaninov, Beethoven, Chopin and Ginastera.
